This upcycled fashion show will include examples of altering used clothing into a variety of fashion styles including Boho Chic, Lagenlook, Post-Apocalyptic, Street Wear, Ethnic, Sophisticated Casual and Goth.

    Linda Barker of SecondTour Design has been creating distinctive jewelry from repurposed materials for over a decade and participates in numerous shows throughout Oregon and Washington. Her newest passion in recycling and reusing is creating engaging upcycled clothing from thrift store and garage sale finds. Barker strives to inspire you to modify existing garments to enhance your unique personal style, thereby positively affecting the environment.

    Explore the new inclusion of tribal history in Oregon schools.

    What does the future of Oregon look like when our youngest learners are given a more balanced representation of our state history and tribal history to inform their individual and collective identities as Oregonians? The nine federally recognized tribes of Oregon are designing and rolling out curriculum to be utilized by K-12 Oregon schools in order to teach Indigenous knowledge that aligns with state standards and objectives. This invitation to learn Indigenous ways of knowing has come in the form of Senate Bill 13 “Shared History/Tribal History”. Our Oregon schools will adopt and implement new curriculum which will give learners a more culturally relevant and accurate representation of our Indigenous communities and shared history.

    Justine Lowry is a Bend community member of over a decade and adjunct professor at both COCC and OSU Cascades. Her areas of specialization are Art History, K-12 Art Education and Native American Studies. Growing up in Northern California and Southern Oregon, Justine learned about her European and Native American heritage primarily from her grandfather, Leonard Lowry (Hammawi band of Pit River, Maidu and Washoe). As a Hamawwi band of Pit River tribal member, Justine enjoys leading discussions about visual representations of identity and narrative within Indigenous arts. Justine works towards a reflexive approach to teaching the complex history of the colonization of the Americas and a placed-based pedagogy that enriches the lives of learners.
